Artwork Description

My first foray into matte painting. Created as an excercise for the digital matte painting forum on CGTalk..It is pretty much all "hard round" brushwork on a photograph. That includes spaceship with its turbine up the back there. The crushed snow that surrounds the objects through to the running water and crystals bottom right hand side.

Very interesting, i would like to explore this avenue alot more..

my apoligies the original photographer is not known.

A mighty big thank ya very much mate ^^. I do appreciate these words as i am finding that art over the net can be very similar, so having a distinctive trait credited to my art is a number 1 compliment. Many thanks my friend and hope things are going swell for you.

Hey michal, thanks for the compliment. I must admit to have only watched 2 episodes of the first season. Unfortunately while the premise is very cool. I could not find a connection to any of the characters on the series, so i left it. I saw the opener of the 2 season (well it might be second half first season as the tv stations here are fond of splitting seasons up over the year, very disjointing) and thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was a great battle between this earth ship Deadulus i think vs these "Wraith Hive" ships, they were Gragantuan. of course my favourite scale of ship, so i might just have to get back into viewing it on a regular basis...Thanks Michal

It reminds me of a scene from Stargate: Atlantis where they found a huge spaceship that's been grown over by trees. Anyway, excellent picture...I like it a lot!

He he, I know this one too. Smile I remember our discussion on matte painting. It's a real achievement for a first try I must say. Keep up the good work. And by the way ... I am writing this comment on my new MacBook Pro 17", with your beautiful Southern Citadel as a wallpaper. I cannot get enough of it. Smile
